万圣节狂欢

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

不给糖就捣蛋

节日起源

 

01

名称由来

万圣节是诸圣节的俗称

时间是11月1日

纽约市也特别在万圣节前夕晚上举行巡游,让一群吸血鬼、僵尸(zombie)、女巫、科学怪人等齐齐现身,还欢迎市民到场参观,到会者不限年龄、性别,不分阶级、国籍,即使你是胆小鬼,也可加入他们的行列,来个热热闹闹的人鬼嘉年华会。


02

服装由来

万圣节的服装起源于恶作剧。

不只是单调的大小鬼

格林威治村的万圣节巡游(Greenwich Village Halloween Parade)始于1973年,由一位面具工匠兼木偶演员Mr Ralph Lee发起。

 

据说最初他带着朋友和孩童一起在邻居处游行,后来渐渐演变成整个村的大型活动,而活动中当然少不了大型木偶表演,同时,巡游的目的更希望每一个人都是参与者而不是旁观者,所以即使人们只是抱着想看热闹的心态,当你踏进村子里,很快便会被邀请参与巡游,成为他们的一分子。


 

03

南瓜灯由来

南瓜灯源于古代爱 尔兰。一个名叫 Jack的人

南瓜灯源于古代爱尔兰。传说一个名叫Jack的人,是个醉汉且爱恶作剧。在万圣节当日,他设圈套将魔鬼困在一棵树上,他不许魔鬼下来,直至恶魔答应永远不让他住在地狱。

 

Jack死后,因他不相信神,他不能进天堂,而魔鬼也不让他入地狱,为了协助Jack找到回人间的路径,魔鬼给了他一块燃烧的炭,Jack将这燃烧的炭放在他以大红萝卜雕刻成的一个灯笼内,这第一个“Jack的灯笼”,帮助积找寻他的路径回爱尔兰,但他从没找着,于是他永远带著灯笼流浪人间。



 

万圣节的英文介绍

 

Halloween is a holiday celebrated on October 31. By tradition, Halloween begins after sunset. Long ago, people believed that witches gathered together and ghosts roamed the world on Halloween. Today, most people no longer believe in ghosts and witches. But these supernatural beings are still a part of Halloween.

万圣节前夜是在10月31日庆祝的一个节日,根据传统,万圣节前夜的庆祝活动从太阳落山开始。在很久以前,人们相信在万圣节前夜女巫会聚集在一起,鬼魂在四处游荡。现在,大多数人们不再相信有鬼魂和女巫的存在了,但是他们仍然把这些作为万圣节前夜的一部分。

 

The colors black and orange are also a part of Halloween. Black is a symbol for night and orange is the color of pumpkins. A jack-o’-lantern is a hollowed-out pumpkin with a face carved on one side. Candles are usually placed inside, giving the face a spooky glow.

黑色和橙色仍然是万圣节前夜的一部分,黑色是夜晚的象征,而橙色代表着南瓜。南瓜灯是用雕刻成脸型,中间挖空,再插上蜡烛的南瓜做成的,带来一个毛骨悚然的灼热面孔。
